Aphrodite’s Secret by Julie Kenner
Protectors/Superheros Series Book 3 (5th Story)
Jason Murphy is a Protector with bad timing. When his girlfriend gave him what should have been good news, he decided to take care of some other business before celebrating. Who knew he’d be held captive for six long years. By the time he was allowed back into the real world he had lost almost seven years of his life. He had vengeance on his mind.
Lane Kent had been alone for a long time. She did have her foster brother Taylor who watched over her and Davy, her son. And now she had a whole group of friends and secrets. Taylor’s wife Zoe and her brother Hale are Protectors and now she finds out the man who left her so long ago is also one. Even though Jason wants to be part of her life once again she just can’t do it. Being raised in foster homes all her life all she wants for her son is a stable home. And she found just the guy who can give them that. And it’s not Jason Murphy.
One of Jason’s unique gifts is talking with those of the fin family. And why not when he is most comfortable in the water himself. I enjoy the way the author brings back the previous characters and their unique personalities into each book, including Elmer the ferret. The fourth book in the series, which is actually the sixth story, is Aphrodite’s Flame. Mordi finally gets his story told.
